You'll have endless, breathtaking views of Gunnison National Forest and the Fossil Ridge Wilderness from this, private 40-acre, custom-built exquisite log home. Nature abounds with open meadows, hill-side aspens, and pine trees to gaze at, an abundance of wildlife to search for, and the towns of Gunnison, Almont, and Crested Butte as your backdrop, thus making the landscape at this secluded property second to none. Located in Gunnison Highlands North, this property is perfect for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts alike as it borders Gunnison National Forest and offers miles and miles of trails to hike, fish, horseback ride, 4x4, OHV/ATV, snowmobile or cross-country ski. At just over 9400 elevations, you'll enjoy those crisp, clear air, star-studded night skies, and sunny warm summer days amongst the wildflowers and pristine, picturesque surroundings. Although the home has seasonal access, the owners have lived there year-round for 13+ years. The winter access is by snowmobile, tracked vehicles, or other OHV's into Almont off CR 742. During the non-snow months, you can access the property by automobile via CR 743 in Gunnison and Lost Canyon Road from Almont. Since there are no HOA rules to follow, and if you don't feel like driving, there is also a potential location on the property for helicopter landing! There are also other homes in the area, mostly 40-acre tracts, so there are neighbors nearby, but not too close! IMPROVEMENTS The current owners built this custom handcrafted, full scribe log home in 2003. It features 12-24" Douglas fir exterior logs, a large covered porch which enters into the front foyer, with hall closet, and beautiful half log, open staircase. This leads you into the open concept kitchen, dining area, and family room and master bedroom on the main floor. Here you'll find beautiful custom-built douglas fir cabinetry, trusses and floors, and wood-burning stove, giving it that mountain home feel. The master bedroom also shares the 3/4 bath off the foyer. The large sunny deck off the dining area is perfect for soaking in those views. The top floor has a second bedroom with a private deck and a large, additional room currently used as an office. This space could also be turned into a bunk room, second living area, or hobby room. It features massive vaulted ceilings with impressive douglas fir trusses and impressive windows, offering lots of natural light and captures those magnificent views. Plus, lots of extra storage. With 2052 sq ft of living space, you'll have lots of space to spread out. The walkout basement is ready for finishing offering an additional 1140 sq ft, including roughed in plumbing for a second bathroom with shower/tub. There are three additional buildings on this private, well-maintained property. If you have horses, you'll love the 30x36 ft barn with power and an automatic waterer, plus small corral on the outside of the barn. Plus, with the perimeter of the property completely fenced in with smooth wire and gates on each side, this property is perfect for horses. The owners had horses there year-round for the first seven years they lived there. There is a 24x24 ft. garage with 10 ft overhangs on two sides to park your vehicles under, and finally, the 18x20 ft greenhouse is perfect for growing those winter vegetables. These owners planned a well thought out, energy-efficient, off-grid home. The expansive solar system provides electricity, but there's a covered, self-contained backup propane generator for those cloudy, winter days. For water, there is a 425 ft deep well, which produces 20 GPM, a solar-powered well pump with 1400 gallon cistern and a hydrant near the greenhouse, which flows by gravity from the cistern. The house is kept warm by propane-powered in-floor radiant heat in the main floor and basement, plus there are low e=-windows and a wood stove. There are two leased 1000 gallon buried propane tanks which run the refrigerator, freezer.
